The first four recipients of the EPIC awards established by the Franklin Community Health Network (FCHN) Spirit Committee have been announced. They include: Diane Daggett, Environmental Services; Beth Giberson, ICU; Roger Wells, Security; and Marsha James, Farmington Family Practice.
Joseph Bujold, board chair, and Joline Hart, vice president human resources, presented each recipient with a trophy and monetary gift at the March 25 FCHN board meeting. Each also has a designated parking spot of his choice for the next three months. According to Hart, “The EPIC awards were developed as a way to recognize employees who demonstrate on a daily basis their commitment to FCHN’s values of Excellence, Pride, Innovation and Caring.”
Daggett’s nomination cited Diane as being “extremely hard working, reliable, and exceptional every day. She not only performs the required tasks of her job with excellence, but goes above and beyond to reach out and touch those around her, offering support, and a caring ear to patients and staff alike.”
Giberson’s nomination described an “endearing kindness to patients that goes above and beyond the normal routines that one would expect from a nurse. For example, one lunch break Beth went shopping with her own money to buy gifts for an elderly patient who was being discharged that day to an extended care facility. Beth purchased and even gift wrapped the personal items and clothing she would need.”
Well’s nomination described an individual “who wears many hats and warmly greets everyone. If you ask Roger anytime, “How’s it going?” His reply is always ‘fantastic!’ One blustery snowy morning Roger was found outside brushing the snow off the cars of staff members who were just getting off their shift.”
James’ nomination said “Whether it is the extra time to listen to someone’s concerns, the time to comfort and console a person going through a difficult time, or a gentle touch to calm a frightened or worried patient, Marsha instills in others the ability to draw upon their own inner strength and resilience.”
Additional nominations were received for: Cindy Sweetser, Environmental Services; Diane Staples, Radiology; Vickie Adams, Cardiopulmonary; Courtney Ryder, Med/Surg: Katrina Tozier, Martha B. Webber Breast Care Center; Maria Watson, Med/Surg; Heidi Hilton, Cardiopulmonary; and Ruth Nile, Sleep Lab. All nominees received a certificate and a copy of their nomination form.
Nominations for review and selection of the EPIC awards will take place on a quarterly basis according to Hart.
